First of all, thank you to Seibertron for keeping us all very well updated on all of the TF related SDCC action! It's the second best thing to actually being there!

That being, I love the Grimlock! He's even better than I had hoped!

Blaster looks very appealing and would look great across from Soundwave with all their minions in tow.

However, still no word on voyager Breakdown?!! I'm really worried he'll never see a US release! I'm thinking I should pull the trigger and import the Takara version before they're sold out. Does anyone think that this is something that could be announced next year for an even later release? Or does that not make any sense at all?

Overall I'm pretty impressed. I kept my expectations minimal and they were exceeded. If we had gotten all 5 dinobots I think my mind would have exploded.
I am excited that they will be tied into the comics and that they might make an appearance in season 3 of TF Prime, but I'm not hopeful we'd get another Grimlock so soon. I would love to be wrong though!

OMG.....GRIMLOCK....was hoping he was coming as soon as I heard Soundwave was gonna be a Voyager. Uber Excited. :KREMZEEK:

Also excited about the Tape Legends figures. Great addon for Soundwave and the New Blaster.

Also extremely happy that the First Editions (Which I think had better versions of Bulkhead and Prime Anyways) are coming. Was kinda worried when Hasbro said "They'd come in some form" that we'd get real Crappy reapints. Like a Dark Prime and a Camo Bulkhead.

Happy that we are getting the Generation repaints. Will Pick Up Wheelie (Love the slingshot weapon), Springer, Cliffjumper (for the FE Mold), and Powerdive and Hot Spot (which were hard to find molds). Not Excited about the G2 Megs, might get him to go with the G2 Prime Deluxe though.

Eh on the Dark Energon figs, unless Starscream looks like Skywarp.....



Basically, As long as nothing gets cancelled between now and Spring 2013 (and the word doesn't get destroyed in December), looks like the next year will be expensive.

Personally, Grimlock and MP Thundercracker are the two big reveals for me. Grimlock looks awesome. And I'm pleased with the paint apps on TC. Good to see that those of us who also wanted the exclusive Generation repaints will be able to be pick them up domestically instead of importing. Hotspot also looks the business.

I know everyone hates the movie toys but I really really really really really want Hasbro to bring back the movie toys. I need my Soundwave and Leadfoot!

yeah i really need a que and leadfoot! i have a soundwave and is that jet wing prime for US release??


I doubt Jet Wing will make it over here to the US. If he does I'm sure there will be some happy people. I'd rather see Striker Optimus Prime make is over here but that too is unlikely.

If I had to nitpick about something(couldn't call myself a fanboy if I couldn't!), I'd want the combined form to have a more appropriate name, rather than stolen from a RiD character. But honestly, the positives completely outshadow it.

I'm not overly fond of the Wreckers combining, but that the Wreckers become Ruination I think is an awesome bit of nostalgia word-play.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Did they ACTUALLY ANNOUNCE that the Asian Exclusive figures are coming to the US, or were they just showing them as part of the slideshow about the brand?

Oh, wait. I get it. Wreckers are in Ruination colors. DUH! Why didn't I think of that sooner.

Roadbuster = Rollbar
Whirl = Rotor
Twintwist = Armorhide
Topspin = Movor
And Impactor /= Mega-Octane?

It kinda works

About 1/2 this stuff excites me, but the rest is skip-city.

The Runiation repaint really bores me and the Blaster remold just isn't inspiring me either.

Grimlock, half the dark energon set and many of the Asia exclusives (can they still call them that? will they be through the club?) will be must-buy for me.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:
ROTF Target exclusive Sideswipe from the 2-pack
TFCC Punch/Counterpunch
Alternity Primes, silver & white versions
(opened is OK, to be used for customs)

PM If interested

Am I the only one who HATES the Wreckers figures? As someone who holds Last Stand of the Wreckers as my favorite comic series, I don't feel they've been done justice at all. Although that might stem from me not liking the FoC Bruticus mold in the first place. I have just one question: What's with the orange?! No one except Roadbuster should have orange! :-x

So are the first edition toys from Prime going to be in American TRUs? Also is only the one of the deluxes coming out? I do not quite understand what "The Choice" means?

Didn't hasbro say something at Bot-con about 40 new figures? 5 components to Bruticus x 4 known repaints/remolds= 20 figures. Is a Springer part of the Wreckers set or just the Deluxe mold?
